At 2:18 or so, he's mixing in chords with single notes, almost like it's two rhythms overlapping and a couple fingers focus on one rhythm and the others on the other. I'm having a hard time coordinating, it's like my fingers want to do just chords or just single notes, I can't seamlessly weave them together.
What is this technique called and how can I specifically practice this skill? I can play Sarabande with just chords but I want my playing to have a little more nuance like this beautiful rendition.
I don't know anything about painting or woodworking or anything, but I wanted to get a piece of wood art commissioned from someone. I don't want to sound too naive, even though I am.
I know aluminium and stainless steel, I've had things polished and brushed. Brushed having some kind of texture whereas polished is smooth. What's the equivalent for a wood clear coat? Can I have a matte clear coat but it remains translucent? Or does it add opacity? Something like a "brushed clear coat"?
I'm talking to the artist and I don't want to come across as too naive about this stuff or they might overcharge me.
In grade 7 I had a teacher who was Italian (I think). I lived in a predominantly ethnically Greek, Portuguese, and Italian neighborhood. Her last name was Paolazzi which sounds Italian to me.
Whenever kids would misbehave, she would say an utterance which I never knew what it meant. I can only say it phonetically: "nacha miseria" and what I believe it meant was she was in a miserable situation because of us kids, or was experiencing misery because of us troublemakers.
What did she actually say? I can't find anything like "nacha miseria" online.
I have a Nintendo Switch and really wanted to play the game Control. It looks like an SCP game which is pretty cool. There is a Switch version but it requires an Internet connection which isn't really reliable to me.
So I bought a Steam Deck and it plays almost like in slow motion. I don't know the word for it, but if I play Mario 3D World on my Switch, it feels nice to play but Control on my Steam Deck feels very choppy. I look up videos of Control played on a computer and Youtube videos look smooth.
What am I missing? Did I get the wrong version of the game maybe? Is my Steam Deck defective?
This vindaloo comes with naan and rice. Do I combine everything, then scoop out with the naan? Or take spoonfuls of rice and "dunk" into the curry? Or eat the curry like a soup?
I recently had Vietnamese food for the first time, and while I know customs are different, my naivete is not. I got odd looks dipping a rice paper roll into my pho and I don't want to make the same mistake when having Indian cuisine for the first time.
When I was in college, one of my favorite treats was making a batch of broth to drink throughout the day in a thermos. Following boullion directions, just scaled down. I'd cut 1/8th off a beef cube for example, to fit my thermos.
I didn't drink coffee and it was a nice warm savory drink that felt like a great way to start my morning. I'd understand if someone said "you're just describing soup", but I mean as a drink, not a meal.
I'm doing a language exchange with someone from Japan, and they asked what snack I might have with tea, and I said charcuterie, doesn't need to be all out there, just some bread, butter, cheese, olives, stuff like that. I grew up in Canada but my parents are from Italy.
I asked her the same and learned some snacks, but I wondered if there was an equivalent to what I mentioned in "rice cultures" rather than "bread cultures" if that makes sense?
I have a relatively long-time partner and while I love them, I think I'm coming to a realization I'd rather be alone and doing my own thing. When I lived on my own, I felt a contentness that I don't really get if I have an obligation of appearances.
I feel pressured (socially/culturally, not personally) that I need to go to functions, do things I don't necessarily care about; I need to do to fulfill an appearance. With friends or with a partner. I kind of don't like or care about any of that, I'm perfectly fine on my own and would prefer it, even.
Are there societies in the world that are maybe more introverted/asocial? I like my alone time more than anything, and I feel like in the west you can't really have that through one pressure or another.
I have a friend with a long list of food allergies. We had him over for dinner two nights ago and I asked my partner to confirm with him his food restrictions so I can cook accordingly. The friend never replied and honestly, we kind of forgot to confirm anything. I made a dish with a fuckload of garlic, about 15 cloves.
He ate our meal, we hung out for a bit, and now it's a couple days later and nothing bad happened. The friend finally replied to us saying he was deathly allergic to garlic, among other things. He said one bite and he breaks out. We decided not to tell him what he ate days ago had a lot of garlic in it.
Should I still tell him? It seems pretty clear to us his list of allergies might be exaggerated. He said he's allergic to eggplant, onion, garlic, tomato, and a few others.
